The Real Meaning of Akshaya Tritiya

The Real Meaning of Akshaya Tritiya – Based on Guruji Krishnananda’s Teachings

The festival of Akshaya Tritiya is on 21st April 2015. In India this day is marked by purchase of gold items. But the Truth is that this day has nothing to do with gold. How this trend started and why it became so popular is not known.

We had once sought to understand the relevance of Akshaya Tritiya from Guruji Krishnananda. Guruji was like an encyclopedia, a one-man inexhaustible store-house of rare and ancient knowledge.

Guruji explained as follows: “This day is for new beginnings. A special energy is available on this day; we can imagine it to have a form. This energy is a part of Mahavishnu. This energy can help us in achieving our resolutions and goals. New projects can be started on this day. If we already have projects then these will be strengthened.”

“The word ‘Kshaya’ means dissipating or reducing; hence the word ‘Akshaya’ broadly means perennial abundance.”

On this day, we can make resolutions not just for our Spiritual but also for our material goals. This is because Vairagya is not renouncing or negating life but it is non-attachment. He also gave us a technique – “We can think of this energy as a male form, because it is a part of Mahavishnu. We can offer energies, pray and make our resolutions. Then we can continue with our regular Stage Meditations. We should ideally meditate during Sandhikalas or transitory time phases of the day i.e. 6 am / 12 noon / 6 pm.”

Many of our endless lists of material and Spiritual wishes are fulfilled but many are not; this is due to our own tendencies, irregular Meditations and lack of concerted efforts. Our Karmas also delay the actualisation of our dreams. But this is the journey of life; we learn and move on.

The fact is, once we have requisitioned for something, it will come to be. The timing depends on our Karmas and also on Karmas of the particular time and place we are in. Efforts are also required for our wishes to come true.

Guruji also said, “Beware of what you ask for because it will come true, if not in this lifetime then in any of the next ones. At that time we may not want this wish to materialise.”

This however does not mean that we should not wish for anything and just let things happen to us. We are co-creators; God experiences His Creation through us – the souls – which are His Amshas (parts). When we are under the shelter of the Rishis(Light Masters), let’s trust them.

When we are simple in our attitude, honest in our hearts, sincere in our efforts and live the Spiritual Principles, our freewill will fall in line with the Divine Will. Until we achieve high Purity levels, we can make our wish-lists and present them to the Rishis, but we should let them decide if it is appropriate for us. Let us trust and surrender ourselves to God.

(Based on the teachings of Guruji Krishnananda)

All human beings must follow a Value System. This should be the System of Universal Values or Universalism. The Universal Values are, love for all, compassion, sharing, truth, peace and perfection—the best of all religions. We have to try to be perfect in everything that we do; whether it is Meditation or any work, big or small.

Such a value system will be the way of life in the future—a non-religion, an Enlightened way of living. The whole humanity will be following it. All present systems that are based on beliefs will be replaced with a system based on direct experience and manifestation of these values.

Once all the human beings accept the Universal Values, the present manmade systems that are corrupt will be shaken and will begin to crumble. Only when the manmade systems collapse, the Divine Systems will come into force.

The Divine Systems need not be built anew. They are already ready and waiting; waiting for us to allow the manmade systems to collapse. All we need to do is, recognise the Divine Systems, accept them and receive them by aligning with the Divine, by choosing Light.

Have faith in the Rishis (Light Masters), have no fear and you will be fine. Believe in this. Carry Light and know that you are safe with Light.

A Glimpse into the Nature of God

A Glimpse into the Nature of God
(Based on the teachings of Guruji Krishnananda)

I had a very beautiful experience. I would like to share it with you.

A few years back, I had gone to Anekal to look for a site to build a Meditation Hall. In one of the sites that I was thinking of buying, there was an old tree. When I looked at the tree, it talked to me. It was no ordinary tree. It said, “This is the site where you should build the Meditation Hall.”

So, I chose this site, though there were cheaper sites available. Now we have our centre there.

Recently, I had been there. In the tree there were thousands of caterpillars eating the fresh and tender leaves. One of the volunteers had brought pesticide to be sprayed on the tree to kill the caterpillars. Before spraying he asked me whether he can go ahead.

So, I asked the tree, “Shall we spray pesticide on the caterpillars?”

The tree said, “No. Please don’t spray it. I want these caterpillars to eat the leaves. After that, I will bring out more new leaves.”

When I explained this to the volunteer, he had tears in his eyes. It was very, very touching indeed.

This is how nature is—kind, magnanimous, abundant, ready to give, expecting nothing in return.

This experience gives us a glimpse into the nature of God Himself.

Last Opportunities

Last Opportunities
(Based on the teachings of Guruji Krishnananda)

Guruji Krishnananda

Guruji Krishnananda

In this Creation, we have endless opportunities to grow spiritually. If we don’t utilize an opportunity provided to us, there will be one more opportunity. There will be a million more opportunities. In God’s world there are endless opportunities. This is the Truth.

But currently, we are going through a period of transition from the Dark Age to the Light Age. This Transition Period is not endless. Therefore, the opportunities during this period also are not infinite.

The time has come to make use of these last opportunities … opportunities to choose Light. Light contains Love, Peace, Joy, goodness, honesty, sincerity and so on. Choosing Light implies choosing all this.

In addition to this, we have to also consciously ‘unchoose’ non-love, hatred, violence, dishonesty, etc. Unchoosing these is as important as choosing Light.

As I always say, choose from the core of your being; it is enough. But I know that it is not easy to make these choices. I have seen people struggling for years to choose Light. We really have to give up many things, beginning with the ego to be able to choose Light.

What we truly choose will be reflected in our thoughts, emotions and in our living.

Let us make use of these last opportunities and choose Light. And let us leave the rest to the Rishis (Light Masters) and God.

Our contribution to Collective Destiny

We are connected to everything

“This is our planet, our only shelter. We are connected to everything on earth and in Nature. While we create our destiny through our living, we also contribute to the collective destiny of the planet. Let us create Peace and Harmony by living peacefully.” – Guruji Krishnananda

Maha Shivaratri

Maha Shivaratri
(Based on the teachings of Guruji Krishnananda)

Guruji Krishnananda

Guruji Krishnananda

Yesterday was the Sacred day of Maha Shivaratri. At midnight, the Great Rishis (Light Masters) travelled to the Divine Plane of Lord Shiva and brought a part of Him with them to our earth. So, Lord Shiva has literally come down to earth.

Lord Shiva is generally known as the Destroyer, because His energies are required for the destructive processes of the Cosmos. But the energies of Creation and Sustenance are also in Him.

Today morning before Sunrise, Lord Shiva entered every house as a ray of Light. His Divine Energies will be available on this earth as Light for ten days.

The Rishis apprise Lord Shiva of the Spiritual condition of this earth and its people. Based on this, Lord Shiva may give instructions to the Rishis, who are the administrators of this earth.

On the first day of Shivaratri, there is a custom of staying awake through the night. This practice is called ‘Jagarana’ in Sanskrit, which literally means, not sleeping. Just staying awake on one night does not help us spiritually in any way.

‘Jagarana’ is not about sleep deprivation. It is to be understood as Being Aware or Awakening. It is being aware of the Presence of Lord Shiva on earth.

During the ten days of Lord Shiva’s stay on earth, we can absorb more of His energies by meditating and channelling Light more, and also by trying to be aware of His energies and His Presence throughout the day.

May the Lord’s Divine energies destroy all the negativity and ignorance in us and help us awaken.
